Let's Get Organized with Altered Pages


Happy Monday!! We are sharing storage ideas this month at Altered Pages.

This is pictures of a wardrobe built by my great uncle around 100 years ago using cedar off his farm.
My husband revamped it for one of my storage units.

I have all my deco paints in the main section so I can easily reach them. Have a plastic storage box with their stencils on the upper level, a handmade basket with my finished cards, a square drawer box that holds all my envelopes (neatly labeled).

The bottom layer holds my many collected frames, an unfinished quilt, a tackle box with tools, beads, metal stuff.

On the side (pic #2) I have a metal wire hanger attached to the wardrobe (was originally used for canned goods-bought at Lowe's) I store my older Stampin up stamps. 
On the tiptop (pic #3) we bought a old timey storage box and took the legs off & hoisted up onto the wardrobe. I keep things I recycle: file folders, clipboards, and cardboard.

On top of the unit I have a big plastic tub for yarn and mini albums I've started & not finished.

This is just one corner of my room!!  Later in the month, I will charge via video my remaining room.  I'll need time to straighten up. Been making Valentine's cards like CRAZY!


 So where do I store my supplies from Altered Pages????   You'll have to check back Feb 16th. I'm going to do a video with lots more options!!

All month long our designers will be sharing ideas.  Check in daily!! Altered pages....

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

DecoArt Stencils-Wall Art

I wanted to create  a nice design on my bathroom wall. I used DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint. Several stencils were used: First I taped off 7x7 squares leaving an inch between them. I painted them White Wash White. It took a couple of coats to cover up the lavender on the wall.  The I started layering using Botanical stencil and Antique Green. I used all 3 designs and just moved the stencil around on each square.  To get a different shade, I added some of the White Wash White to do the 2nd leaf. The third one I used yellow. The flower is from the Garden collection and is Reusable -stick on stencil. I did some of the flowers in Black Plum and some in Yellow. The bird is from the Bee's and Birds stencil. I did two coats of Black Plumb. I ended up sealing it with a coat of Satin Varnish.

 I hope you'll be inspired to paint on your walls!!
